Some people take in stray or rescue cats or dags, I take in Bersas.
A friend of mine who since having a motorcycle accident a couple years ago has problems racking the slide on semi-autos. I didn't even know he had a Bersa until a month ago or so until at our monthly Triumph Motorcycle club breakfast a month ago we were sitting around taking and guns got brought up. I mentioned that I have a few Bersas and he mentioned that he had a Bersa .380 he was thinking of getting rid of and just carry a revolver.
So, I emailed him and asked if he was still thinking of selling his Bersa Thunder. He replied back that he wold have it at the next breakfast. And, he did. I did not know until I saw it that was the Thunder CC. I made a good deal with him and that was that. Pretty cool since I didn't have a Thunder .380 CC yet.
I got in touch with Eagle/Bersa, this gun immigrated to the U.S. in December 2007.
So, anyway it's Bersa number five for me.

Hopefully, I'll get a chance to shoot it this weekend. Apparently, the guy I bought it from doesn't quite understand gun hygiene. It took me a couple hours to get it all clean, and I'm still not completely satisfied. Hopefully after shooting it a bit will warm it up and make the cleaning a bit easier. With it being as old as it is, the only other thing I am concerned about is the age of the recoil spring. One of my BT380s is a few years older than this BT380CC and was having some fail to feed issues, I replaced the recoil spring and it's like new again, which is pretty cool especially considering it is only an $8 part.
